Here we have a rather nicely made 7 1/4" gauge GWR 1366 Pannier tank. Built by a well respected model engineer who, having run the model for a short period at his local track in Newport, sold the model to a private collector who placed the model on display,.... which is how she's been for the past 15 years.
There's lots of nice detailing touches on the body work, and the valve gear and general machining quality is first rate, with very little slop evident in the motion. She promises to run as well as she looks, indeed other models built by the same chap were regular and reliable runners at the club.
There are two injectors fitted, plus an axle pump with footplate mounted bypass valve,.... and then there is also a large double acting hand pump in the bunker, so if you run out of water it'll be because you're having a REALLY good cuppa and chat!
Lubrication is mechanical and nicely accessible on the running boards. All in all this is a lovely thing, and promises to be a pleasure to run. She can of course be given a full 4 year hydraulic boiler test and fresh annual steam certificate so she is ready to play.
For any more information please don't hesitate to give us a bell on 07816 963463
Sorry It's Sold!
